Graduation dinner in Pittsburgh?

denise8101214 Feb 8, 2012 01:08 PM

Could anyone give recommendations for a Saturday night graduation dinner celebration? 10 people, ages 16-88. Looking for relatively quiet, not terribly expensive, would prefer close to Oakland but will consider other locations. Thank you!

    Thinking of Cafe Sam (on Baum), Ali Baba, Lucca, Legume...

      The Porch will not take reservations. Neither will Union Grill. :(

      I have eaten at and really really liked legume on Craig St. I am considering it. The food was great. Wondering if it will appeal to the younger and older members of our party.

        Just remember you can't please everyone. When I was about 16 I got taken to a restaruant I would of never want to go to or afford to go to.. However, to this day it was the best meal I ever had, and what got me into food. Legume should be a safe choice for all age groups.

        legume (http://legumebistro.com/) would probably be a good choice, also close by, in Oakland on Craig St.

              My vote is for Porch also. I can't wait til weather permits sitting out by the fireplace on the side of The Porch with bottles of wine and good friends. Happy Graduation!!
